GIVE gifts of Stock

Gifts of appreciated securities are a smart and simple way to maximize the effectiveness of your charitable giving. If stocks or mutual funds you’ve held for more than a year have increased in value, you may want to consider using these assets — rather than cash — to fund your giving.

Your broker may call our Finance Team at 608.314.8420 to complete the gift.

GIVE via IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution

If you are 70½ years or older you may also be interested in a way to lower the income and taxes from your IRA withdrawals.

Contact your IRA plan administrator to make a gift from your IRA to United Way Blackhawk Region. Your IRA funds may be directly transferred to our organization to continue our important work.

Please note, IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution gifts do not qualify for a charitable deduction.

Benefits of an IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution:

  • May give up to $100,000 via Qualified Charitable Distribution from your IRA tax free, annually.
  • May satisfy your required minimum distribution (RMD) for the year.
  • May reduce your taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions.
  • Make a gift that is not subject to the deduction limits on charitable gifts.
